I have found that Ransom Calhoun b.April 4, 1882 Oxford, WV, parents were Eugene and Nancy (Richards) Calhoun. He married Ellen/Ella Gertrude Rollins b.Jan. 1882 in OH parents were Moses and Rebecca (Peoples) Rollins. They had two children. Edith May born Feb.2, 1900 and Elsie Carrie July 26, 1902. They were both born in Parkersburg, WV. Then at some point after that they moved to Bellingham, WA., along with Ella's parents and sisters and brothers. That is where Ella died of TB on May 9, 1906. Then Ransom married Ollie Spurgeon in Bellingham in 1907. And it would seem they moved back to WV as they were there in 1920. They had more children and although they left Edith to live with her grandparents and aunts and uncles in Bellingham, WA, they raised little Elsie with their other children.
Edith May married at least three times, possibly 4. and died Edith May Kjersgaard in Coulee City, WA on Nov.1, 1973.
Elsie was married at least once, I would imagine more times. But I know she did marry Worthmer Rice June 1, 1921 in Belmont County, OH. They had at least one daughter Lillian, which I am trying to find information on as well.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone with knowledge of these folks. Thanks!
